Their relationship has been the subject of recent rumors, but Perrie Edwards let a picture do the talking when she posted a snap on Instagram Wednesday that showed her fiancé, Zayn Malik, kissing her on the cheek.

Malik, 22, Edwards, 21, and some of his family members jetted out of the U.K. earlier this week for a tropical vacation.

Doniya, one of Malik’s three sisters, also posted a photo collage on her own Instagram of herself with her brother, her mother and future sister-in-law.

The couple’s relationship has been under scrutiny since early March, when photos surfaced of the One Direction singer with another woman while the group was on tour in Thailand.

Malik denied cheating rumors, Tweeting on March 18, “I love a girl named Perrie Edwards. And there’s a lot of jealous f—- in this world I’m sorry for what it looks like.”

He left the band’s tour the next day, citing stress, and flew back to London – and Edwards.

Just a week later Malik quit the band.

In his first interview following the headline-making news, Malik dismissed the cheating rumors once again, and described the Little Mix singer, 21, as “a good girl.” “She’s always supportive,” he added. “She’s always good, man.”
